Silence, contrary to appearances, is not the opposite or absence of music, it is the absence of matter, the absence of sound conductors – things, people, water, landscape, air particles, and architecture. Without matter, we are condemned to the silence of sounds, they become impossible to hear but also impossible to see, feel, taste, touch and remember. Designing buildings and forming spaces is thus also designing and shaping acoustic space, taming it, giving sounds quality, colour and rhythm.
The installation will be open to the public from August 19th to September 11th 2022,
Tuesday to Sunday from 12pm to 7pm.
It will be accompanied, among others, by discussions on the interpenetration of architecture and music and a mini-concert in the space of the Room for Listening.
Room for Listening is a musical and spatial installation in ZODIAK Warsaw Pavilion of Architecture, created by pianist and composer Hania Rani and architects: Łukasz Pałczyński and Jan Szeliga (Zmir architecture and craft studio). The artwork explores the relationship between architecture and music and the mutual constellations of sound, space and material. The authors invite the audience into multi-sensory experiences, to memory work and to an attentive relation with the environment and with others.
